adrenoline and shirts



Ever heard of extreme ironing? Apparently, it "combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt." Some places where ironing has been done: the exact center of the Antarctic, 137m (450 ft) underwater, Mt. Everest, a nudist beach, in caves, while rock climbing, while jumping off a rock face, while hang gliding and while bog snorkeling. In case you are wondering, the irons are battery-powered. Here is a video of extreme ironing and here is a photo gallery from the official site.

That is one of the most insane things I have ever heard about. I hate ironing and I cannot imagine doing it for a hobby.

I don't like ironing either. My clothes are always very wrinkley. But I would love to do all of those extreme things.

Did you find stats about this sport(?) in France? People here are passionate about both, extreme sports and ironing. Figure this could become the national sport.

Satire and Theology, I like the ultimate fighting and ironing idea.
And, Grillman and Luna, while I could not find statistics, I found two neat pictures of ironing in France.
